Best Bike Rack for a 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser with Rear Mounted Spare Tire


I know the back tire is a bit of a pain.. which one would attach to the tow hitch and not need an extender piece? we are going on a road trip in one week and need it asap. Thank you

For your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser, I recommend the Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack part # TH9027XT. This bike rack is unique in that it has a swing away feature that will allow for access to the rear hatch without removing the rack. It can carry up to four bikes and will clear the rear mounted spare tire with ease. It also has a hold fast cradle system which holds your bikes are three different points for maximum security. The only drawback of this carrier is that you need to use part # TH982XT if you have any alternative frame bikes.

I have attached a photo of this bike rack installed on a vehicle with rear mounted spare tire for you as well.
